Superzoom compacts with 20X or higher optical zoom
Challenge has finished
Showcase the long reach on a compact superzoom camera with optical zoom able to reach 20X or more. My sample image captured a tiny ant on a flower ~15 feet away, at 150 mm focal distance. I'm interested in what you can capture at a high focal distance like that.

COOLPIX S9100 . Its high quality 18x wide-angle optical Zoom-NIKKOR ED glass lens offers impressive telephoto coverage (25-450mm). The insert at the top of the photo is my view without the zoom lens. this is 18x zoom, but has a range of 25-450mm. I hope this is acceptable for this challenge.
